I am the eCommerce Manager for Personal Impressions and I look after the blog and sample makers.
I have been crafting now for 17 years and been blogging for 5 of those years.
I like all sorts of crafts but paper crafting and especially altered art is my favourite.
I love vintage and shabby chic! I work at home and have a very understanding hubby and two fur babies.

Amongst my many hobbies I enjoy Paper crafting, Altered Art, Stamping and generally making a mess. 
When I'm not 'crafting' I love to be out on the motor bike with Hubby 
or pottering around the garden with a coffee in one hand and a trowel in the other!


My name is Margaret Binder but everyone calls me Mags.  
I am 51 years old and have two grown up daughters and a very understanding husband.  I started paper crafting about six years ago and totally love it.  I mainly make cards but I will have a go at anything paper related.  After a busy day there is no better way for me to unwind than to disappear to my crafty room and get creating. 

Hi, I am Pandy, better known as kitten to my friends and on the web.  
I have been crafting since I was a tiny tot – growing up without a television meant that craft was my main activity.  I love to mix up my craft techniques and push my craft supplies to the limit.  I always say that I want a product to do 6 things – and if it makes the tea as well – it’s a keeper.
I guess you could say my style is modern and colourful, very busy, with lots of layers, surfaces and textures – I loves patterns, glitter, ink and paint – and am never happier than when getting all messy.   I am always experimenting with mixed media – and love to journal on unexpected surfaces.  We are lucky where we live to have a few really great charity shops – and you will find me rummaging about for things to use in my projects and give a second life to.  I sometimes wish I could do a simpler style – but, hey – a girl can never have too much bling.
These days I am lucky enough to live in the wonderful Lake District with my artist hubby, computer geeky son, 2 mad terriers and a cat that lives in the attic.

Hi, my name is Samantha Wade.
So delighted to be on the team for Personal Impressions.
I live in the West Midlands with my husband Peter and two ragdoll cats (the girls) 
I have always been creative and addicted to paper crafting. Shabby Chic and pretty sparkly thinks are the things I’m drawn too.
I like to attend workshops in new areas of craft, being mixed media or a bit different to keep me up to date.
I am a hairdresser and a keen gardener.
You will find me in my craft room in my spare time, I’ve always got a project on the go. 
Hi my name is Gill and I am a full time working wife, mum and nanna.
I have always loved making things as far back as I can remember but became serious about it when my children were little. As with most of us crafters I started with knitting, cross stitching and sewing.  Once I found card making and paper crafting I was hooked and filled my house with lovely crafty goodies ever since.  Luckily I have a very patient husband who eve helped me create my craft corner in the living room so we can still sit in the same room as each other.
I have recently reinstate by blog Dixie Designs by Gill and am getting used to keeping it up to date so feel free to pop over, have a look and leave a comment.
I am so pleased to have been picked for Linda's design team it is a real honour as I have followed her for a long time.  This is my first DT and I am really excited to get creating.
Hi my name is Lou and I live near Saffron Walden in Essex. I have been crafting, in one form or another, for as long as I can remember but was introduced to card making about 5/6 years ago. I'm not sure I have a style per say, as love to give anything a go ... well I need to have to keep the creative juices inspired. When not card making, I can be found creating either a mixed media or altered art project; messy play = heaven. I have recently begun to fall in love with creating mini albums.

Hi, I am Tracey Collett, mum of 3 kids, Kyle 15, Josh 12& Sophie 6 and fiancé to Chris and have been running my own card making business for 3 years now. Which has given me a chance to make quite a range of products for my customers and craft full time. I am actively working on my Blog ( on a regular basis and actively use social media such as Twitter (UCgreetingcards), Facebook (Unicorncraftshandmadecards), Instagram (Unicorncraftshandmadecards) & also now have a You tube channel for my tutorials and projects. It was a busy 2015.

I have always loved crafting and I have enjoyed many areas of crafting from restoring wooden items to jewellery, card making & wedding stationery to fimo modelling over this time. I especially love to rubber stamp and colour using various mediums, I find this gives a chance to relax whilst working which can’t be bad J

In the last year I have taken my crafting to the next level and have been lucky enough to be chosen to be on several Design Teams which has developed my crafting skills as well as my confidence and I have met some amazing new friends along the way, Crafting certainly helps extend your friends as well as your skills.I even started to watercolour paint last year which I have always wanted to do and have sold several cards with my own paintings on them.


Hi, I am Carol, also known as Domestic Goddess Crafts.
I live in Glasgow with my hubby and fur baby cat Aggie.
I have always had a bit of an obsession with paper, pens and pretty things from a very early age so getting crafty was just a matter of time! 
I love all sorts of crafting but cardmaking and scrapbooking/PL are my favourites. I am known for my clean and simple style.
I look forward to sharing my makes with you.
